It all began in 2016 when Dr. Kyle Burton was visiting his family and noticed his brother’s dog, Zoey, was itching intensely. Zoey even had missing patches of hair from scratching so much it would fall out. The veterinarian said it was allergies and gave him medication but unfortunately it wasn't working at relieving the progressive itch. Already being an established herbalist and acupuncturist in West Hollywood and Los Angeles, Dr. Burton wanted to combine his love of Traditional Chinese Medicine with his love for animals. He completed advanced educational courses in safely treating animals with traditional herbal formulas. He made his first herbal extract and mailed it to his brother. His dog responded quickly. The itching decreased within a couple doses and after a few weeks there was a full coat of healthy, shiny hair.
Speaking to his patients with pets, Dr. Burton learned there was a real need for more natural medicine for pets. Allergies, Arthritis, and Anxiety were the most common complaints his patients told him so he created three separate herbal extracts to help with each ailment.
Then in 2019, Next magical moment happen when Michael and Serge was walking in a park in West Hollywood California of an event Michael designed for Lisa Vanderpump Dog Foundation on BRAVO's TV reality show "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" - It was there the three met and Michael and Serge learned about the power of his Chinese herbal formulas for our furry friends. As a Pet Advocates they saw the power of Kyles formulas and wanted to help share the magic with pets worldwide. It was here that their three's journey together began, developing integrative medicine and working collaboratively with allopathic doctors to make sure each pet patient receive the best holistic complete care.
Michael and Serge started by reengineering the applicator making it safer and easier to use. They rebranded the product packaging by creating a reusable box with sustainably in mind. Dr Kyle went into back into the lab expanded the line to include formulas that assist in relieving other common symptoms cats and dogs suffer from. Today Healthy Paws Herbal Labs has over 14 formulas and also offers custom formulas for individual issues. Starting back in 2016 as a domestic product, Healthy Paws Herbal Labs now helps pets around the world. Not only does Healthy Paws offer the original NON CBD Essential line, but has extended the line to include the Essentials Plus which has Broad Spectrum CBD hemp oil with 0.0% THC.
As fine artist Michael and Serge have design a limited edition of art pieces - Art for Pet Charity which helps pet rescues and charities by suppling them with the Healthy Paws Herbal Labs formulas for their pets looking for their fur-ever homes.
"We truly hope these products are able to bring your pet as much relief as they already have with so many other pet owners.”
